Methyl Hydrogenated Rosinate

Methyl Hydrogenated Rosinate, a cosmetic-grade resin, is the methyl ester of hydrogenated gum rosin. This liquid resin is given a special steam-sparging treatment to assure minimum odor. With its low odor and low vapor pressure, it is particularly useful as a fragrance fixative. It has excellent solubility and compatibility with non-polar and many polar ingredients in cosmetic applications, contributing both adhesion and gloss.

Application

  • as a resinous plasticizer or tackifier in finished products such as lacquers, inks, adhesives, floor tiles, artificial leather, and antifouling paints
  • carrier and fixative in fragrance compounds
  • component in chewing gum base to adjust hardness, plasticity, and chew characteristics

Benefits

  • excellent pigment wetting properties
  • high boiling point
  • high refractive index
  • low odor
  • low vapor pressure
  • resistant to oxidation
  • wide solubility and compatibility ranges
